17-year-old girl sentenced to death

Iran Press News: Translation by Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzzi.
17-year-old Nazanin was sentenced to death for protecting her chastity against three rapists who attacked her on April 20th, 2005 [on the Akbarabad road that leads to the Tehran suburb of Karadj], with a knife. She stabbed one of her assailants, named Youssef, in self-defense; he was stabbed in the heart and later died in the hospital. The misogynist regime of the Mullahs that has ruthlessly violated the rights of all girls and women in Iran since it's inception in 1979 continues to savagely punish (either by public execution or stoning to death) all women for defending themselves.

During Nazanin's court hearing, onlookers who witnessed the attack, confirmed Nazanin's claims against her assailants; the penal court, branch 71 decided however that the death sentence must be imposed. In her last court hearing, Nazanin said: "I only wanted to defend myself and protect my family's reputation and good name." One of the Mullah judges replied: "How could you murder a young man? We will teach you a lesson so that the likes of your filthy whores cannot raise a hand on men ever again."

Later it turned out that her attackers were in fact Basijis (a mobilization force created by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini; they are extremely Radical militia - overseen and supported by Khamenei and Ahmadinejad) from Karadj. READ MORE

Freedom-loving women and youth,

We hereby announce that we will take to the streets and hold massive demonstrations against the immoral regime of Mullahs in order to show them, once and for all that they cannot play with the lives of Iranian women in order to promote and protract their political and despotic goals.

If you rise,
If I rise,
Everyone will rise.

Onward toward evermore massive protests against the misogynist ruling Mullahs
